LFC reiterates commitment to tackling antisocial and criminal behaviour
As the 2022-23 season nears its conclusion, Liverpool FC is continuing to support an all-football approach to ensure that every fan feels safe attending matches.
The club has backed the introduction of strong measures across football to tackle antisocial and criminal behaviours within football grounds.
This includes entering the pitch without permission, carrying or using smoke bombs or pyros, and throwing objects onto the pitch, as well as discriminatory behaviour and taking drugs. All of these actions are illegal, dangerous and have no place in our game.
For everyone’s safety, all clubs will report anyone carrying out these offences to the police. Prosecution by the police can result in a permanent criminal record, which could affect your employment, education and international travel, and in some cases result in a prison sentence.
Anyone who enters the pitch without permission or uses smoke bombs or pyros will receive an automatic club ban. This could also apply to the parents or guardians of children involved in these activities. Entering the pitch could also result in club penalties.
LFC is continuing to support the FA, Premier League, EFL and the Football Supporters Association to make football a safer and more welcoming environment, by cracking down on these dangerous behaviours that can put fans, players, staff and match officials at risk.
We ask our fans to come together to show that those who commit these illegal acts do not represent the majority of supporters.
You can report any antisocial, criminal or discriminatory behaviour to your nearest steward, police officer or via our Red Together reporting form.
